It doesn't seem like anybody's going to be stopping the Los Angeles Dodgersanytime soon.
The Dodgers' incredible run continued Saturday afternoon with a 7-4 victory over the New York Mets at Citi Field - a win that sent their season into historic territory. Saturday's win was the Dodgers' 43rd in their last 50 games (since June 7), making them the first team since the 1912 Giants to win 43 out of 50 in a single stretch of any season.

The Dodgers now own a 78-32 record overall.
''It's a wave that we're riding,'' manager Dave Roberts said postgame, according to the Associated Press. ''I know our players and they realize that we haven't done anything yet.''


Los Angeles is now on pace to finish 2017 with a 115-47 record - a mark that would leave them one shy of the all-time wins record held by both the 1906 Cubs and 2001 Mariners. Only seven teams have won more than 110 games in a baseball season since 1900.
In case you're wondering, those 1912 Giants - managed by Hall of Fame skipper John McGraw - rode their 43-7 stretch to a final record of 103-48 and the National League pennant, before losing a memorable World Series to the Red Sox in seven games.

They should talk to the Warriors. Don't mean shit unless you win it all.
